The Alhama Signature golf course has been closed since October after it’s owners GNK responded to a lack of visitors due to Covid-19.
Concerned residents at Condado de Alhama have recently taken to social media to raise concerns over the golf courses condition just 2 months after it’s closure. A lack of maintenance and increased destruction by rabbits is clearly visible, as the photo’s below show.
A local business owner presented several photos to the Facebook group ‘A Fairway to Heaven‘ that were taken on an inspection of the course’s first 9 holes. The findings have shocked many residents and owners, many of which have been unable to visit the resort during the Covid-19 crisis.

The photo’s clearly show a worrying lack of maintenance. The course owners GNK have stated on their website that they will ‘keep up a minimum daily maintenance of the golf course so when we do reopen the golf course it will be playable and presented in a condition that our members, residents and guests can enjoy‘.
This worrying news has attracted many comments from concerned owners who fear what the long term closure of the golf course might have on the resort and their property investment.
Some people have commented that the deterioration and damage caused by rabbits might be costly to resolve or continued neglect the course might cause irreversible damage.
It’s believed that the current owners GNK are willing to sell the golf course along with several parcels of adjacent building land. While this gives some hope that the course will be reopened when a new owner is found in the meantime it’s closure looks to be having a big effect of the once pristine golf course which may affect its saleability.
